Gawar, Krishna & Shiv Win Delhi-Dehradun Expressway’s Work

Gawar Construction, Krishna Constructions and Shiv Build India on Friday each won one package of the 210 km Delhi – Saharanpur – Dehradun Expressway after National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This access-controlled expressway is being developed in 4 phases. Its 32 km Phase 1 (Akshardham in Delhi to Eastern Peripheral Expressway) will primarily be a brownfield upgrade, while Phase 2 (EPE Baghpat to Latifpur at Saharanpur Bypass) will be constructed on a greenfield alignment.

Phase 1 – Package 1 (Akshardham to Delhi-UP Border)

Gammon India was the lowest bidder for its original tender. In April, NHAI cancelled that tender and re-invited bids. Technical bids were opened on June 4 to reveal 13 bidders.

Brief Scope: Development of six lane access control greenfield highway of Delhi-Saharanpur-Dehradun EC under BMP from Design Chainage 0.000 (Aksardham NH-9 (old NH-24)) to Design Chainage 14.750 (Delhi-UP Border) in the state of Delhi (Package-1) on EPC mode

  • Length: 14.75 km
  • NHAI’s Estimate: Rs. 1264.33 crore

Financial Bids of Lowest 5 Bidders:

HG Infra1114.11

J Kumar1135.00
GR Infraprojects1190.97

Phase 2 – Package 2 (Lohadda – Karaunda Mahajan)

27 bidders had submitted 49 bids for Package 2 and 3’s original tenders. NHAI cancelled those tenders without offering a reason and shortly re-invited bids. In May, NHAI received 55 bids from 29 bidders for its construction.

Brief Scope: Development of 6 lane access control greenfield highway of Delhi-Saharanpur-Dehradun economic corridor under Bharatmala Pariyojana from Design Chainage 27.000 (Vill-Lohadda) to Design Chainage 56.500 (Vill-Karaunda Mahajan) in UP on EPC Mode (PKG-II)

  • Length: 29.5 km
  • NHAI’s Estimate: Rs. 693.70 crore

Financial Bids of Lowest 5 Bidders:

FirmBid (Rs Crore)
Krishna503.00
Raj Shyama520.13
Gawar554.96
Galfar564.00
Ceigall581.00

Phase 2 – Package 3 (Karaunda Mahajan – Khyawari)

Brief Scope: Development of of 6 lane access control greenfield highway of Delhi-Saharanpur-Dehradun economic corridor under BP from Design Chainage 56.500 (Vill-Karaunda Mahajan) to Design Chainage 82.000 (Vill-Khyawari) in UP on EPC Mode (PKG-III)

  • Length: 25.50 km
  • NHAI’s Estimate: Rs. 633.03 crore

Financial Bids of Lowest 5 Bidders:

FirmBid (Rs Crore)
Shiv Build India434.99
Raj Shyama461.98
Shivalaya491.00
Krishna Constructions493.00
SKS Infra514.96

The lowest bid for each package was ridiculously way below NHAI’s budgeted estimate. NHAI might seek clarification from the lowest bidders for financial bid evaluation, but I believe contracts would eventually be awarded since they’ve all qualified through the technical round.

With this development, winners for all packages of phases 1, 2 and 4 are now known. Design details of this expressway along with a list of all packages and their status can be viewed here.

    So common sense has prevailed. The muradnagar meerut Muzzafarnagr route is already saturated with extremely high traffic. Good to see that they plucked alternative route for the meerut expressway and dehradun expressway is routed through the old Saharanpur route, which has long been ignored. Crossing Baghpat means this will be connected with eastern peripheral highway
    RRTS once operational needs to be immediately extended to Muzzafarnagar.
